Longcat: Cosmology

Having familiarized ourselves with Longcat and the implications of ultimate sacrality in the postulate "Longcat is long," today we will consider the feline internet phenomenon through the second tier of Rappaport's fourfold lens. Recall that below ultimate sacred postulates Rappaport ranks cosmological axioms: ideas about how the world is structured and functions in light of the ultimate sacred postulates which stand above such axioms. As we noted in our first discussion of Rappaport, cosmological dualisms are particularly good examples of such axioms, and in Longcat's case a readily apparent dualism exists.
